I just wanted to know which laptop you would go for out of the Aorus x3 cf1 or the gigabyte p34w. I know the gigabyte is newer however the Aorus has a 870m 6gb and the gigabyte has a 970m 3gb. How much difference would there be between the two chips? Which one would be better to go for?
The 970M is tremendously faster than the 870M, with a performance leap that looks more like two generations' worth of advancement. It exceeds the flagship GTX 880M at all times, and destroys its predecessor, the 870M, zipping past by as much as 50% in some benchmarks. The difference in RAM won't be felt, because neither card is fast enough to run games at 4K, which is where the 3GB and 6GB framebuffer size typically become useful. Certainly choose the GTX 970M-powered laptop.
